About PT in Motion

  • PT in Motion (formerly PT Magazine) is the professional issues magazine of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA).

    Published to meet the needs and interests of APTA members and to promote physical therapy as a vital professional career, PT in Motion provides legislative, health care, human interest, and association news and serves as a forum for discussion of professional issues and ideas in physical therapy practice.

    Have any ideas for articles that would provide insights or address practical issues such as the changing health care environment, management techniques, documentation, the patient-therapist relationship, professional development, and education? Don Tepper (donaldtepper@apta.org), editor of PT in Motion, is eager to hear from you!

    PT in Motion is not a peer-reviewed journal and therefore does not publish research reports or case studies on efficacy of treatments or on reliability or validity of methods. Authors wishing to publish a research report or case study may want to consider submitting such articles to APTA's journal, Physical Therapy (PTJ).
